“ O serpent heart, hid with a flow'ring face! Did ever dragon keep so fair a cave? Beautiful tyrant! fiend angelical! Dove-feather'd raven! wolvish-ravening lamb! Despised substance of divinest show! Just opposite to what thou justly seem'st - A damned saint, an honourable villain! ” William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet(1597).copy citation
Kwize MasterJuliet has just learned from her nurse that Romeo killed her cousin Tybalt and was banished to punish him for his crime. Juliet then complains by using oxymorons to show how ambiguous Romeo is, between his soft appearance and his violent behavior.
On the one hand she is in love with Romeo whom she finds wonderful, and on the other hand Romeo's actions are terrible and put Juliet in a very difficult situation.
